*Ladies, you’ve worked hard to hone your craft. You’ve been performing for years and finally, you stepped out and developed your own theatrical piece. Moreover, you’ve performed it for small crowds on a number of occasions and much to your delight…they loved it.
 
If this sounds like you, the Los Angeles Women’s Theatre Festival, now in its 25th year, would love to meet you. Who knows, after their panel of professionals get a look at your video performance…they may love it too!

*The Los Angeles Women’s Theatre Festival offered ‘Taking Flight’ as the theme for the 24th Anniversary Festival.

The event took place at the Barnsdall Gallery Theatre in Hollywood.

Awarded on this evening were women who are somehow involved in the business of entertainment. Presented with the “Eternity Award” was beloved local vocalist Barbara Morrison; Megan Cavallari with the “Integrity Award,” and Paulina Sahagun with the “Maverick Award.” Two women were honored with the “Rainbow Award” — namely, Estelle Campbell and  Leslie K.
